Controversial filmmaker Michael Moore hopes his new documentary SICKO will have a greater impact on society than his previous projects.
Moore claims the films he made about school shootings and the aftermath of September 11th have been ridiculed - and he is desperate to be taken seriously.
He tells Empire magazine, "I made Bowling for Columbine in the hope the school shootings would stop and that we would address the issue of how easy it is to get a gun in the United States and, tragically, those school shootings continue.
"I made Fahrenheit 9/11 and I said that we'd been led to a war under false pretence. I said it on the Oscar stage and I was booed off.
"It's my profound hope that people will listen this time.
